Osprey nest on roof, video

This video, from Virginia in the USA, says about itself:

July 8, 2012 by VirginiaPlantation

These are our baby ospreys at Belle Grove Plantation. (sorry the video is so jerky) Our resident osprey[s] James and Dolley had two babies and they are just about ready to fly on their own.

The male adult osprey of this nest is called James, after James Madison, the fourth president of the United States of America. James Madison was born on historic Belle Grove plantation on March 16, 1751.

The female adult osprey is called Dolley, after Dolley Payne Todd Madison, James Madison’s wife.

July 2012. Rare English ospreys may have defied the dismal summer weather, but cold conditions and record rainfall have still taken their toll: here.
